It is based on the belief that practising fake laughter gradually becomes genuine and natural turning out to be beneficial for our mental, physical and social health. We all just gather and laugh heartily without any reason to kill away our depression, stress and anxiety. The sole purpose of this club is to inspire the importance of laughter among everyone so that all of us can battle our fears by indulging in it rather than approaching a psychologist or taking medical pills. Our aim is to prove the statement correct that ‘laughing is indeed the best medicine.
